Welcome To CT USA Boxing



ANNUAL MEETING / REGISTRATION NOTES

Thank you to all the gyms that came to the Annual Meeting! We covered a wide variety of topics and had some lively discussion among the group.

And a HUGE thank you to Jenni Keenan-Shuttleworth for allowing the LBC to use Fighting Fitness to conduct the meeting!

Here are some Registration items that were shared with the group:

- 2015 registrations begin on November 1, 2014; if you register anytime after 11/1/14 your membership will be good until 12/31/15
- As of NOW there will be no increase in membership fees for 2015. However, the last increase came in the last 2 weeks of December and so this is subject to change. They will remain $53/boxer, $88 or $103/ coach and $200/gym unless we hear differently.
- There is no deadline for the boxer physical requirement- as of now no physical is needed to participate.

Any questions? Please reach out to us!

AIBA Passbook Update

I have started to replace the white USA Boxing passbooks with blue AIBA-issued books. Boxers who are 15-40 will be receiving the new passbooks. JOs and Master boxers, as well as coaches/officials have not changed. I will return white passbooks in case boxers would like to keep them BUT only blue passbooks will be accepted for competition after they have been issued (returned books have been labeled "VOID"). Any questions please let me know!

STATE OF CONNECTICUT FORMS FOR CLUB RENEWALS

The first of the year is a busy time for paperwork. As well as renewing online with USA Boxing on the national website, usaboxing.org, there are State of CT forms due as well. The forms are available for download here.

The AMATEUR BOXING PROGRAM YEARLY REGISTRATION FORM is due in January of each year.

The FACILITY REGISTRATION FORM has a $100 fee and is used for those clubs that plan to hold a USAB sanctioned event in the club facility.
Det Mark Langlais, the Administrator of Boxing in the State of Connecticut, explains. As the regulatory agency, we here at DESPP oversee all regulatory issues for USA Boxing in Connecticut.
The FACILITY REGISTRATION FORM is required by any facility in which any USA Boxing registered club is going to hold an event in. This form is required to be signed off by the building inspector/official as well as the fire marshal indicating that they approve the facility for a boxing event. It is a yearly requirement but it is not necessary to renew or resubmit the form if you decide not to have a boxing event in the following year. I hope this helps and answers any questions you may have. If I can be of further assistance, please do not hesitate to call or email me at the below listed contact numbers.
